This morning I went for my usual sunrise and early morning walk and swim in the ocean here in Bali.

Usually I drop my sarong on the beach and head straight in to be buffeted around by the waves - I am after all quite small and the surf at my local beach is pretty much always right onshore and happy to knock me around a bit!

But this morning I was feeling more contemplative.

So I sat on the sand for a while.

And I watched the surfers riding the waves, which were quite big this morning.

I watched a woman paddle out, who I had seen in the scooter parking area about 10 minutes earlier. I watched her paddle out and I thought - “How Awesome! Go Girl! Yes! You are so good!”  And a string of praising and positive thoughts passed through my mind as I watched this yound blonde woman paddle out.

I watched other surfers for 5 minutes and then I had my eye on her, out the back with all the male surfers.

And I watched....and watched...and watched.

She didn’t catch a wave.
She didn’t ride a wave.
She didn’t even try to get on to a wave.

And I thought “Huh! That’s interesting. What is she doing? IS she gonna catch a wave?”

I watched some more.
More waves rolling through. Awesome waves. To get on and surf. And that’s what everyone was doing.

Except her.

She just sat there, on her board, not even trying to get paddle onto a wave.

Now I don’t surf, I had lessons about ten years ago, and I have not yet had lessons again, and there is no way I would have been out there to be honest with you!
It was big enough for me to know I would have felt out of my depths.
So all praise to her for getting out there…

And then I thought, (In all transparency) -

“That is EXACTLY what I am DOING!”

“Sure I am HERE living in BALI and I AM living LIFE the way I want……
BUT…….HONESTLY…….I’m NOT to the FULL extent that I desire and want for my life!”

I am not really FULLY LIVING the way I want.
I am not really FULLY CREATING what I want and i the way I WANT.
I am not really FULLY GETTING INVOLVED in life the way I DREAM of.

And this might seem strange for some of you to read, because you think I am here

.....and have been traveling the world and freedom-business for some years now...and doing my best to follow my bliss and my pleasure.

And I am…...kind of.

But - I AM like THAT woman. 🙄

I have my rash vest on.
I have my surfboard with me.
I have ridden my scooter to the surf beach.
I have paddled out into the surf.
I have made it out the back where I need to be to catch the waves...

BUT -

I AM SITTING ON MY SURFBOARD NOT DOING SHIT!

I AM SITTING PRETTY ON MY SURFBOARD!

NOT PADDLING TO GET MYSELF ON A WAVE!

NOT CATCHING A WAVE!

NOT SURFING!!!!

The EXACT THING that SHE is doing or I AM HERE TO DO -

And by that I MEAN -

LIVE LIFE!

CREATE MY DREAMS!

CREATE
MAKE
INSPIRE
WRITE
SPEAK
DESIGN

And sure it’s noble and stuff to get out there in the BIG SURF.

To get on your board.

To paddle out in the surf…

But HONESTLY…REALLY...COME ON!

You are not here IN THIS LIFE to JUST PADDLE OUT!

To just SIT on your SURFBOARD OUT THE BACK!

To let the waves roll under you, as you sit on your board looking gorgeous with your long flowing hair!

YOU and I are here to GET INVOLVED IN LIFE!

YOU and I are here CREATE LIFE!

TO RIDE THE FREAKING WAVES!

All props to YOU!

You paddled out, you are out there IN THE SURF of LIFE, you are sitting on your board and you are IN THERE, kind of sort of doing that live life create your dreams life thing….

BUT, come the f@ck on!

STOP sitting on your surfboard and RIDE THE WAVE!

That’s what you are here for after all!

And I know that’s what you are doing too!!!


I know you are sitting on your board and you are out the back ready...

......except you are not going ALL in, you are not really doing, creating, being what you are here for.

I see you hanging BACK.

I see you not taking ACTION!

I see you stuck in FEAR.

I see you stuck in DOUBT.

I see you stuck in STRUGGLE.

 

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE HERE FOR YOU TO DO, CREATE, HAVE, LIVE, ENJOY, AND BE.

It’s time for you to DO IT

It’s time for you to PADDLE on to the wave

And it’s time for you to RIDE THE WAVE BABY!

Because if you don’t….then what are you actually doing here, except sitting on your board looking pretty!

P.S. It's time to step up and ride the waves - to finally DO, BE, LIVE the LIFE you are MEANT TO BE LIVING!

Not letting the waves and the DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS & YEARS slide by underneath you.

That's what's happening for you....and it only leads to REGRET & DISAPPOINTMENT & RESENTMENT 😱😩😖
